Crisis club Chelsea are expected to announce plans for a major clear-out at the club after the shock ousting of manager Jose Mourinho, sources close to Stamford Bridge have said.
Frank Lamp-post, Didier Dogdirt and other overpaid 'stars' will be offloaded to make way for fresher faces who will drastically reduce the wage bill at the struggling London club, owned by Russian 'businessman' Ronald Abramovich.
The 'downsizing' has already started with Avram Grant, brother of actor Hugh, being installed as a 'cheap replacement' for Mourinho.
Ricardo Carvalho, Florent Malouda and Michael Essien are also rumoured to be on their way, and friends of England captain John Terry have said the defender has already met with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger about a North London transfer to the table-topping Gunners.
Fans on Chelsea's website spoke of their anxiety at Mourinho's departure, and the exodus that might follow.
Harry Palmer, a Blues' fan for more than 30 years, said:
"It's the end of the dream."
